School Notes

How is Classical Christian Education different?
  • Time-tested methods that have been staples in Western culture and the Church since the second century.  
  • Students cultivate an interest in first principles and ultimate purposes.
  • A tone of inspiration, fulfillment, joy, and respect are visible throughout.  
  • An emphasis on cultivating wisdom rather than just teaching facts and skills.
Through intellectual and spiritual integration, students develop a thoroughly Christian worldview.  We take a more integrated approach to literature, art, history, science, math, and theology with the latent philosophies of each subject brought to the forefront.  Rather than confining Christianity to a Bible class, we view all subjects through the lens of Scripture.  Cornerstone Academy's curriculum prepares students for AP and honors classes when they reach upper grades.

My kids have attended Cornerstone Academy Christian private school for three years now. I really like the classic education with a faith-based curriculum. All the core math, science, and reading and more. Even if I lived 15-20 minutes away I would still drive my kids there each day. They just moved into a larger building and this year they have music and sports too. The best teachers and the students are of similar character, which means I know they will be a good influence.

We began at Cornerstone in 2012 when my eldest son started preschool here. I had no idea what "classical education" meant and immediately began researching it. I was blown away with what I found and am beyond blessed we found this little school! Now all three of my boys attend and I am so impressed with what they can do and the level of critical thinking they exhibit at such a young age. We are treated like a family here and my children are growing both spiritually and academically in ways that are so needed in today's world.

Our family has been at Cornerstone Academy since it first opened in 2007. During that time, we''ve seen our children grow in knowledge beyond what their friends from public and other private schools are experiencing. But beyond that, the The Christian aspect of our experience has blown us away...not only are they taught a Christian worldview, their spiritual growth is cared for on a daily basis here! I feel like our parenting is actually more effective because we''re on the same page with the school, and we back each other up. What a blessing it has been to be here.
